Huawei Reveals New Fast Charging Technology

Following the announcement of Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0, which promises to fast charge your mobile device from 0-80% in about 35 minutes, Huawei is the latest one to join the fast charging technology race, by revealing its very own "next generation of quick charging technology".

Watt Lab, owned by Huawei Technology Corporation Limited, has announced a brand new types of quick charging lithium-ion batteries that has the ability to 10x faster than current batteries, reaching about 50% capacity in mere minutes. The lab has also showcased a couple of demos including a 600mAh battery that can be charged to 68% in two minutes, as well as a 3000mAh battery that can be charged to 48% in five minutes.

According to Huawei "The company bonded heteroatoms to the molecule of graphite in anode, which could be a catalyst for the capture and transmission of lithium through carbon bonds" The company continued "The heteroatoms increase the charging speed of batteries without decreasing energy density or battery life".

Huawei's new breakthrough in quick charging batteries is expected to be expended from mobile devices to other electronic devices including electric vehicles, wearable devices, and mobile power supplies.
